Paw Prints on My Heart Pet Shop

Hi, everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I’ve been wanting to have an online store for several years. What held me back is, I have a background in customer service, not, marketing. The times I’ve needed to promote something (an affiliate program, for example), it didn’t go so well. I figured, this time around, a smart business person would delegate the responsibility to those who are skilled in that area. Though, I will still do some of my own advertising.

I wasn’t sure what my focus would be & then, it came to me. Pet products & animal themed items. It fits so well. I volunteer with the kitties at the shelter here in Ukiah. I have a blog for lost/found/rescue pets & those needing to be rehomed/fostered/adopted in NorCal. I have a rescue/rehome group on here that incorporates the counties for area code 707. Throughout my life (including with my husband), I’ve done rescuing & adopting. Though, in a much smaller way than I’d like to. I’ve/we’ve also never fostered.

As some of you know, my husband & I have been working on getting a home. We’re stalled in the loan process. We have good credit & references. Due to disabilities & health issues, we both work from home. As an independent contractor, projects vary, as does income. This venture should be just what is needed. We had a mobile in Cloverdale for seven years. Then, life went topsy turvy for awhile. We’ve been in this studio for three years. We’re thankful for it, though, it’s definitely been less than ideal, to say the least. Won’t go into details, but, happy to share in private.

Besides wanting a house that we can truly call a home, we want a place where we can seriously start rescuing/fostering/adopting. As you know, there are more animals needing loving, nurturing homes than those who can provide them. We want to be one of those families. We’ve been told we should probably do quite well with that. 10% of the proceeds will be given to MSPR (Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue).

At this time my store carries toys & supplies. Limited on food & treats. My current suppliers don’t tend to have those. I am looking for additional ones. I also have animal related items, such as, jewelry & crafts. Besides them having cats & dogs, they include other animals, such as, wolves & tigers. I hope to always have free shipping, a sale every second weekend of the month (50% off on select items), loyal customers who have made 10 purchases will receive a special code for 25% off their entire 11th order. I will be adding other options down the road.

Any questions or requests, please send to: pawprintsonmyheartpetshop@gmail.com I have a page on Facebook for the shop: https://www.facebook.com/yourpetproducts/ The actual shop: https://pawprintsonmyheartpetshop.com/ I hope that you find what you seek. Do keep checking back & please share this with everyone you know. It will help create a better present & future for us & the animals we take in & at MSPR.
